Information about City Facilities and Services
City Facilities Open in a Limited Capacity
While some facilities will be open, citizens are encouraged to limit their visits and continue using City services, such as making Utilities payments, electronically or by phone.
Citizens entering or being present inside any City facility are required to wear a face covering and maintain six feet of distance between themselves and others.
It is still imperative that citizens continue to stay home as much as possible. Congregating in groups remains unsafe and is still prohibited. If citizens must go out, maintain a physical distance of six feet from others and wear a face covering.
While the City’s Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department will not be offering traditional summer camp programming this year, youth micro-programs are being developed and more information will be released at a later date. Pursuant to the Governor’s May 15 public health order, all swimming pools must remain closed until May 31, with further guidance, including operations, provided from the State. As such, the City’s three outdoor pools will not open this summer; however, and depending on future State emergency health orders, the Rio Rancho Aquatic Center is targeting an early June opening with limitations on capacity and operations.
